I am just now getting on the wireless bandwagon and am having a hard time
doing so. I have sincerly tried to find the answers on Google but am not
coming up with anythign that helps me.

I have a ipaq 2215 and am looking at either an Ambicom CF 802.11b card or
the Netgear 701 card. Any recommendations?

I have borrowed a friends Ambicom card to "test" it with my wireless router
and was able to get the device to say it was connected but I never could
acess the internet via PIE. Can anyone point me to a good set by set
procedure for getting up and running with a Wi-Fi card on a 2215 with WM
2003?

Thank you all for your help and time.

Just get the card on the WLAN, configure it for INTERNET in the
connection Manager and it should work fine.

Personally, I use the Socket Com WiFi CF card, but I see no reason why
others shouldn't work as well.

The Ambicon card works great with the 2200. I got mine at a Best Buy, I
think.

The Ambicom works great on my 2215, did you install the needed drivers?
